This report is based on a qualitative formative gender evaluation of the Viable Sweetpotato Technologies for Africa (VISTA) Tanzania project implemented in seven districts in the Mbeya, Iringa and Morogoro regions, which are part of USAID’s (United States Agency for International Development) Feed the Future zone of influence. VISTA Tanzania seeks to (1) contribute to improved dietary diversity, food security and incomes in
Tanzania, especially among households with children under five years of age; (2) expand the production, consumption, storage, utilization and marketing of orange‐fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) and its products; and (3) create financially viable sweetpotato seed and root enterprises to improve the sweetpotato value chain. This report discusses these aims with the objectives of influencing the project’s strategies for training and
rollout of technologies and of fostering the development of gender‐responsive OFSP seed businesses. The report will be of interest to researchers and policy‐makers aiming to expand the production and utilization of the nutritious OFSP.
